Afrikaans singer Leah will once again play host

kykNET's popular dating reality show Boer Soek 'n Vrou is returning for a twelfth season with the announcement of the ten farmers who are looking for love, but not all in the same place this time around! Nine farmers are looking for a female companion with the tenth hoping to find love in the arms of a man.

They were all introduced during a special episode on DStv’s kykNET channel Sunday night. This is the first time ever that an openly gay contestant will take part in the Afrikaans reality show. Damien is a 38-year-old cattle and sheep farmer from Bapsfontein who is bravely putting himself out there in a tv show that commands a mostly conservative Afrikaans following. The series will be presented by popular Afrikaans singer Leah, pictured above.
